I am an entrepreneur. I founded my first startup 1999 in San Francisco, CA. I gained extensive experience building teams, businesses, and scaling up. From 2010 I spent eight years in high profile management positions in publicly traded companies.
Besides my computer engineering degree from San Jose State University, I also hold an MBA degree from the University of Chicago, where I concentrated on entrepreneurship and strategy. I like to learn, so I take every opportunity to do so.
Currently I serve on the board of YPO in Munich as the Learning Officer. In my spare time, I like to ski, sail, bike, and spend time with my wife and son.Contact Me
I support startups with capital during the seed phase.
My extensive experience is helpful to the companies I invest in.
People are the most valuable asset. I make sure we get and retain the best.
I love alpine skiing, and do a lot of ski tours in the alps (and worldwide).
Running for me is a way to relax and gets my mind off my work.
Using the power of the wind to go places has always fascinated me.
Learning new things and understanding how they work has made me successful.
The world is my home, and I am very fond of seeing places and meeting people.
I love books and magazines, and am reading about a book every two weeks. Knowledge is power..
I am particularily proud of these activities and projects in my life.
